MySpace 2

Warning – MySpace Music accounts are for MUSICIANS. Uploading songs you do not own is a violation of the artist’s copyrights and against the law. If you upload songs you do not own, you account will be deleted.

If you would like to show support for a musical group or artist, create a fan club in our GROUP section here.

These are the rules posted on MySpace. I am guessing that the person who set up the Ottmar Liebert MySpace account, let’s call him E., pretended to be me in order to get a free musician’s account on MySpace. I believe that his intention was simply to let people hear my music and send them to my web site. I had no problem with that and did not contact MySpace, but either somebody else protested or the MySpace police found out that Ottmar Liebert on MySpace was a fan site and not a musician’s site and deleted the account yesterday evening. I then opted to claim a new account in my name before someone else did.

To tell you the truth, I am not sure what to do with the new MySpace account. I do not want to take the time to update it often, and I don’t want to deal with adding friends, which seems to be a really big deal on MySpace: how many friends do You have?

In any case, I am leaning towards putting up a couple of photos and some music and otherwise just linking to this Diary. Of course, if I had kept my big mouth shut, E. would still be taking care of the Ottmar Liebert MySpace and this chain of events would not have happened. Silence is golden.

    Your right in regards to posting a few pictures, some music and then linking to your main site. It’s better to funnel fans to your main page than try and update all of them. the only exception is if you use an rssfeed reader on the other sites that pull your blog posts from your primary site.

    Do you happen to know which RSS reader can be used on MySpace?
